Reflection on a new program | Build In Progress S1E9

October 10, 2018

Many of us know the feeling of reflecting on our work whether it is in the classroom, boardroom, building a program or building relationships. The self-critique is an essential piece to growing as a professional. James Campbell describes the ups and downs of growing into a new role as a STEAM Interdisciplinary Specialist and determines that building relationships and community is way more important than building spaces and projects.

Iteration on a STEAM Program | Build In Progress S1E8

October 2, 2018

We chat with Russ Horvath - Art District Chair for a large Illinois public school district. Russ describes some incredible interdisciplinary courses he is championing and we collectively brainstorm how to do more of that work despite the many hurdles in both public an private schools. In this episode, we really lean into the idea that it could be the Arts that really lead interdisciplinary efforts....especially through the process of critique.

Diverse Networks w/ Marie Graham | Build In Progress S1E6

September 18, 2018

A big part of exploring the intersections of different disciplines is finding a diverse network of people who live that "anti-disciplinary" life everyday. I don't know anyone who can tap into a network of people better than Marie Graham. I ask her how she pulled off middle schoolers skyping with refugees and how she turned a few LinkedIN clicks into the first world class high school Virtual Reality lab of its kind.
